Global food co seeks novel approach to enhance sweetness, naturally
A leading food manufacturer is looking for partners to help it identify natural ways to enhance sweetness, perhaps by utilizing ‘waste’ materials from food processes such as fruit peel.

In a posting​ on the website NineSights, open innovation expert NineSigma says it is “representing a global food company”​ which “seeks proposals for effective sweetness enhancing solutions from natural sources, methods of identifying these substances as well as manufacturing options​.”

Its target is to obtain a sugar reduction of 20-30%.

Of ‘primary interest’ to its client are materials with sweetness enhancing and modulating properties.

Of ‘secondary interest’ are materials with “sweetness properties (e.g. natural sweeteners substitute to sugar)”, ​says NineSigma

Meanwhile, “materials that are already used in food processes with currently no added value would be of particular interest (waste stream, sugar molasses, peels from fruits, etc​)”.

Solutions already offered by flavor houses or natural sweeteners already employed in the industry (stevia etc) are not of interest.

Responses are due by April 22, 2013.
